trip description for Shark Fishing Trip in Ogden

Hop on board with Captain Judson and get ready to hunt the predators of the ocean in this exciting fishing adventure! Sand Tigers are found off the coast of North Carolina all year long and can grow up to 12 feet, so be ready to do some serious reeling! These beasts come out of the womb already 4 feet long and like to linger around wrecks and live-bottom habitats. Sporting small fins, pointed snouts and jagged teeth, Sand Tiger Sharks have menacing looks but are usually docile around humans, so no need to be intimidated! On this 4, 6, or 8-hour trip, Captain Judson will take you from Ogden to the nearshore waters off the coast of North Carolina where you'll be going after monstrous Tiger Sharks. You'll be using a couple of different methods to catch these big fish including light tackle, bottom fishing, and trolling. Whichever method, Captain Judson knows the waters and will get you properly set up for some bites! You'll be fishing aboard a 17’ Maverick skiff boat with a capacity for 6 people. Equipped with a 125 HP Yamaha engine, this boat is maneuverable and will get you to even hard to reach spots in the inshore and nearshore areas. This vessel comes with a trolling motor, elevated casting platforms, a push-pole and a power-pole to let you get those perfect casts! Captain Judson will provide all rods, reels, tackle, and live bait. Cold waters and a cooler full of ice will be on board with enough room to store your own food and drinks. All you need to bring are sunglasses, sunscreen, and any snacks or drinks you might need. Even if the weather does not show rain, a rain jacket is recommended. Come aboard and Captain Judson will make sure you get some picture-worthy fish! Read More

trip description for 1/2 day inshore in Morehead City

Get ready to explore the inshore and nearshore waters off of Morehead City, NC with Captain Jeffrey! This trip is perfect for those looking to tackle a wide variety of species, from classic North Carolina inshore sportfish such as Redfish and Spotted Trout, alongside hard-fighting nearshore fish such as Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and Striped Bass. This trip will focus on trolling for fast, predatory fish, and when they take that bait, get ready for the fight of your life! Captain Jeffrey knows how to put you where the fish are, but once that rod is out of the rod holder and in your hands, it's you versus the fish. Bring your strength, skills and stamina, because these fish will be on their A-game. You'll get off the dock aboard your guide's 24' Carolina Skiff—a great type of boat for fishing everything from flats to estuaries to nearshore structure. It's powered by a 200 HP Suzuki engine, so you'll be on the fish in no time at all. Captain Jeffrey will come prepared with everything you need for a great day, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle.

trip description for Full Day Offshore in Wrightsville Beach

We will usually run about 20 miles offshore to where the higher relief ledges and wrecks can stretch for miles. Big depth changes offshore usually mean more schools of bait and more predator fish chasing them. I like to maximize fishing time so we will usually start on the inshore edge of where the best action has been and work our way further offshore. King Mackerel are the majority of what we will catch, with Amberjack, Barracuda, Mahi and possibly a Sailfish mixing in. This trip is for those who love to be far out to sea for an extended period of time. I will clean your fish and bag the filets when we get back to the dock. Read More

trip description for Nearshore Bluefin Special in Sealevel

North Carolina is one of the only places in the US where it's possible to catch Bluefin Tuna this close to shore! In certain seasons, these huge pelagic fish migrate north, and pass close to the beaches of the Outer Banks and barrier islands, giving fisherman an unmatched opportunity to hook these incredible fish without going hours offshore. Captain Justin is an experienced fisherman and a terrific guide who knows exactly how to put you on the fish and help you hook one. He'll come prepared with all the necessary gear, including top-quality rods and reels, trolling equipment, and most importantly, plenty of expertise for tackling these massive fish, which can weigh in at around 500 pounds, although 300-pounders are more common. Unsurprisingly, Bluefin are incredible fighters that can really wear you out, so bring your strength and stamina for this trip! On the day of the trip, you'll go aboard Captain Justin's 27' ProLine center console—a perfect boat for finding, chasing, and landing big Bluefin. It's equipped with twin 250-HP Susuki engines, so you'll spend less time cruising and more time fishing. You'll be set up with everything you need—but when the rod is in your hands, it's just you versus the fish! To make the most of the day, make sure to bring the essentials: Polarized Sunglasses, Hat, Weather-Appropriate Clothing, Sunscreen, and a Camera! Read More

    We booked a trip with captain Jaime for two days in the beginning of our trip. My fiancé is an avid fisherman, and was able to pick captain Jamie‘s brain for information on the area, and he gladly shared. Captain brought us to some great spots, and there were some fish caught. We even got to fish one of the shipwrecks from the Civil War, which was amazing. We couldn’t of asked for a more hospitable and kind and knowledgeable guide for this trip.

    My son and I had such a fun trip with Captain Jamie! He was great with my son, a patient teacher, and he navigated the area with ease. He even tried to hook us a shark! We also saw dolphins and lovely wildlife, and we caught some interesting fish. My son can’t wait to go back and is counting down the days until we see Jamie again!

    Jordan was a great captain! By gosh, by dern, he was going to find some fish for us. Nearly defeated, he found a spot at the end of our trip. He was kind enough to let us fish a bit longer than scheduled so we could pull in a few. Thank you!

    Great time! Can't wait to go back.

    Kyle G. with Drew Z. of Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina

  • ★★★★★
    Captain G is the man! We had a blast on our trip chasing reds on soft plastics and fly inshore, hammering flounder at G's secret spot, loading up on Spanish Mackerel at the jetties, running the beaches for cobia and catching bluefish and a 6' Blacktip Shark, and then running a few miles off to try our luck on some amberjack. This trip was a wild nonstop adventure and I came away amazed at the variety of fishing opportunities Captain G can line up at the drop of a hat. There was never a dull moment and G's setup is perfect for skinny water, zipping down the coast, and fishing open water offshore. His gear is top of the line and he was super quick to re-rig tackle when needed so we were keeping lines wet. 10/10 and can't wait to fish with G again sometime soon. -Jonathan with Captain Experiences
